571 Projects is pleased to announce small things considered, the gallery’s first-ever silent auction. As part of our special events program, 571 Projects is presenting a curated exhibition of small works available at buy-it-now prices. Featuring work by artists Lindsey Brown, Leah Durner, Liz Engelhardt, Sally Gil, Jan Gilbert, Jimmie James and Jaclyn Mednicov, this is a fun and exciting opportunity for aspiring and veteran collectors to acquire work. For more details on the silent auction process, please visit our web site at www.571projects.com/content/small-things-considered.
small things considered showcases fragments that allude to a larger whole, or diminuitive contained universes. These works allow the viewer to gain focused and intimate insights into each artist’s finer gestures. Highlighting the synergy between mid-career and emerging artists, all those in this accomplished group demonstrate their own unique evolution and approach. Unexpected and rich dialogues are created between Jimmie James’ vibrant abstract landscapes and Liz Engelhardt’s nearly monochromatic plein air pieces, Jan Gilbert’s photo transfer images from New Orleans’ French Quarter and Jaclyn Mednicov’s delicate drawings of nature overrunning the urban environment. Leah Durner’s colorful and gestural gouache on paper respond to Lindsey Brown’s deliberate sketches including found objects and Sally Gil’s playful collages. Collectively, the energy will make for an impressive show of small but substantive original work. A charitable donation will be made in support of the Lower East Side Girls Club’s arts programming.
small things considered will be on view December 14, 2010 through December 18, 2010 at 571 Projects, 551 West 21st Street, Unit 204A, New York City, 10011. 571 Projects is open Tuesday – Saturday, 12 – 6pm, and by appointment.
